  10. 10. CHAPTER : 3 REVIEW OF LITERATURE STOCK MARKET IN INDIA A stock market or equity market is a public entity (a loose network of economic transactions, not a physical facility or discrete entity) for the trading of company stock (shares) and derivatives at an agreed price; these are securities listed on a stock exchange as well as those only traded privately. In the stock market, purchases and sales of shares are affected in condition of free competition. Government securities are traded outside the trading ring in the form of over the counter sales or purchase. The bargains that are struck in the trading ring by the members of the stock exchanges are at the fairest prices determined by the basic laws of supply and demand. The Bombay stock exchange (BSE) and The National stock exchange (NSE) are the two primary exchanges in India. DEFINATION OF STOCK ENCHANGE: STOCK EXCHANGE is an organized and regulated financial market where securities are bought and sold at prices governed by the forces of demand and supply. The securities include: Shares of public company Government securities Bonds
  11. 11. FUNCTIONS OF STOCK EXCHANGE: 1. Continuous and ready market for securities Stock exchange provides a ready and continuous market for purchase and sale of securities. It provides ready outlet for buying and selling of securities. Stock exchange also acts as an outlet/counter for the sale of listed securities. 2. Facilitates evaluation of securities Stock exchange is useful for the evaluation of industrial securities. This enables investors to know the true worth of their holdings at any time. Comparison of companies in the same industry is possible through stock exchange quotations (i.e price list). 3. Encourages capital formation Stock exchange accelerates the process of capital formation. It creates the habit of saving, investing and risk taking among the investing class and converts their savings into profitable investment. It acts as an instrument of capital formation. In addition, it also acts as a channel for right (safe and profitable) investment. 4. Provides safety and security in dealings Stock exchange provides safety, security and equity (justice) in dealings as transactions are conducted as per well defined rules and regulations. The managing body of the exchange keeps control on the members. Fraudulent practices are also checked effectively. Due to various rules and regulations, stock exchange functions as the custodian of funds of genuine investors. 5. Regulates company management Listed companies have to comply with rules and regulations of concerned stock exchange and work under the vigilance (i.e supervision) of stock exchange authorities.
  12. 12. 6. Facilitates public borrowing Stock exchange serves as a platform for marketing Government securities. It enables government to raise public debt easily and quickly. 7. Provides clearing house facility Stock exchange provides a clearing house facility to members. It settles the transactions among the members quickly and with ease. The members have to pay or receive only the net dues (balance amounts) because of the clearing house facility. 8. Facilitates healthy speculation Healthy speculation, keeps the exchange active. Normal speculation is not dangerous but provides more business to the exchange. However, excessive speculation is undesirable as it is dangerous to investors & the growth of corporate sector. 9. Serves as Economic Barometer Stock exchange indicates the state of health of companies and the national economy. It acts as a barometer of the economic situation / conditions.
  13. 13. MAJOR STOCK EXCHANGES OF INDIA: NATIONAL STOCK EXCHANGE (NSE): The National Stock Exchange (NSE) is stock exchange located in Mumbai, India. It is the 11th largest stock exchange in the world by market capitalization and largest in India by daily turnover and number of trades, for both equities and derivative trading.

  14. 14. BOMBAY STOCK EXCHANGE (BSE): Bombay Stock Exchange, commonly referred to as the BSE is a stock exchange located on Dalal Street, Mumbai, Maharashtra, India. It is the 10th largest stock exchange in the world by market capitalization. Established in 1875, BSE Ltd. (formerly known as Bombay Stock Exchange Ltd.), is Asia’s first Stock Exchange and one of India’s leading exchange groups. Over the past 137 years, BSE has facilitated the growth of the Indian corporate sector by providing it an efficient capital-raising platform. Popularly known as BSE, the bourse was established as "The Native Share & Stock Brokers' Association" in 1875. The Bombay Stock Exchange is the oldest exchange in India. It traces its history to the 1855, when four Gujarati and one Parsi stockbroker would gather under banyan trees in front of Mumbai's Town Hall. The location of these meetings changed many times, as the number of brokers constantly increased. The group eventually moved to Dalal Street in 1874 and in 1875 became an official organization known as 'The Native Share & Stock Brokers Association'. In 1956, the BSE became the first stock exchange to be recognized by the Indian Government under the Securities Contracts Regulation Act. In 1986 it developed the BSE SENSEX index, giving the BSE a means to measure overall performance of the exchange. the Bombay Stock Exchange switched to an electronic trading system in 1995.
  15. 15. SOURCES OF DATA There are two main sources of data 1. Primary Data 2. Secondary Data Primary Data The data, which is collected directly from the respondent to the base of knowledge and belief of the research, is called primary data. The most preferred way is to interview the individuals to get a sense of how they feel Secondary Data When the data is collected and compiled from the published nature or any others primary data is called secondary data. So far as our research is concerned, we have not collected any information from any sources. So, we have not used secondary data for our research. LIMITATIONS OF STUDY Despite of the training my level best, there were still some limitation which I think remains there to draw fruitful conclusion. Personal Bias: Individuals may have personal bias towards particular investment option so they may not give correct information and due to which the conclusion may be derived. Time Limit: The time duration given for the research is less. Area: The area was limited to Delhi only, so we cannot know the degree of literacy outside the city.

These schemes should be provided to those customers who do not trade.  Sharekhan should tie up with more banks for online fund transfer that reduces the paper work for customer and ease in trading.  The company can increase the customer base if it reduces the account opening charges which will boost the competition.  The company should revise the advertising strategy to increase its brand awareness. I suggest making advertisement on television so that maximum market can be targeted.  The company should focus on the customer satisfaction and provide them with full care and advice even after they get a De-mat account opened.
